High-risk sex offender Christopher Watts now living in Vancouver

Another high-risk sex offender, also convicted of manslaughter, is now living in Vancouver after being released from a 12-year prison sentence.

Christopher Michael Watts, 55, is a three-time federal offender who was sentenced in 2002 for manslaughter after giving a young girl a lethal concoction of drugs at his home near Cambridge, Ontario. He was also convicted for sexual touching and sexual assault.

Vancouver Police say Watts has exhibited a pattern of giving large quantities of drugs to young girls and having sex with them without their consent.


During Watt’s conviction, he was given the label of long-term offender, which means prosecutors believe he is likely to reoffend. He had recently failed multiple attempts at parole, with the Parole Board stating he was a “high risk for violent and sexually violent reoffending despite completion of some programming”, according to the Hamilton Spectator.

Watts is described as white, 6-feet tall, 160 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes. He will be bound by a long-term supervision order with the following conditions:

  • not to consume, purchase or possess alcohol or illegal drugs
  • not to own, use or possess a computer or any device that would allow access to the internet
  • not to be in the presence of any female children under the age of 18 unless accompanied by a responsible adult who knows his criminal history and has been approved by his parole supervisor
  • report all friendships, sexual relationships and intimate relationships with women

Anyone witnessing Christopher Watts violating any of these conditions is asked to call 9-1-1.
